Meet Alysa Thacker: December Employee of the Month

Miss Alysa is currently leading a classroom of 12 babies at our Lakewood Ranch, Florida center. She stepped into this role and we have been so impressed with the effort she continues to put forth every day to deliver the highest quality of care. Families and faculty alike really appreciate all she has done to make such a busy classroom run so smoothly and successfully.


Families rave about the amazing care she provides. She engages with the babies through personal care routines, and that it comes so naturally to her! She is always talking to them during feedings, diaper changes, play and curriculum. Parents also appreciate the beautiful photos she captures and sends through our parent communication app. Alysa always adds a personal message – just another way in which she makes meaningful connections with every child and parent in her class.


Alysa is currently enrolled in a Child Development Associate Credential program and plans to pursue an official “Lead Teacher” title once she has completed the course. Recently, she also participated as a member of the Doodle Bugs! Education Team’s lesson plan research team. We admire Alysa’s commitment to growth.


Alysa’s teammates describe her as compassionate, reliable and positive with a genuine approach to childcare. Her commitment, love for the children, and true kindness makes her an inspiration to others.
